§ 277 – Sixth Edition

For the same reason, and because a medicine, provided the dose of it was sufficiently small, is all the more salutary and almost marvellously efficacious the more accurately homoeopathic its selection has been, a medicine whose selection has been accurately homoeopathic must be all the more salutary the more its dose is reduced to the degree of minuteness appropriate for a gentle remedial effect.

If the dose is reduced to the appropriate degree of minuteness the more homoeopathic it is, the more efficacious would be the cure.

 

Explanation

According to the necessity, if a homoeopathic remedy is used in a suitable higher potency, the cure is gentle and happy. (It does not mean use of higher potencies than required. It is only a caution to ensure that the potency lesser than required is not used.)
